In this class, you can choose from tart charms, cupcake charms, mini parfaits, mini clip parfaits, and sushi candles to experience making food samples.
You can choose from many parts and create your own original work.
○ Tart Charm, Cupcake Charm
The base of the tarts and cupcakes are pre-made, making it easier for children. The food sample is also a key chain, so you can hang it on your bag after it dries.
Pick out five fruit items, squeeze the whipped cream onto your sample, and put on the toppings.
○ Mini Parfait
The sauce is pre-made. Pick out five fruit items, squeeze the whipped cream onto your sample, and put on your toppings.
○ Mini Clip Parfait
Because a clip is attached to this small-sized parfait, you can use it as a mini parfait clip that holds your pictures and notes together. Of course, you do not have to attach a clip. (In that case, you can take the clip home with you.)
○ Sushi Candle
You will use wax to create a sushi candle with egg, squid, and tuna. Pour the melted wax into a mold and shape it by hand.
You can use it as a candle after it is complete.
